I began as a landscape artist and my experience grew to include surface design, sculpture, mold making, illustration and portraiture. My art work has been applied to ceramic tile, dinnerware, lighting, and gift ware. For a few years I painted portraits of professional athletes and met many while attending shows, spending hours sitting next to them while my husband chatted with their wives! At one point I produced a line of ceramic and cold cast designs. My Christmas angel ornaments were used by the White House as special gifts in 1994. I’m currently adding to a series of paintings meant to be displayed in churches.
I was Co-Founder and Senior Editor for the student publication J.A.M. Magazine from 1997-2000.
With a background in the print industry, and art and writing interests, as well as experience in the field of horticulture/gardening, I combined all these into a garden journal, which has been in print since 2015. The Garden Journal, Planner & Log Book is the result and is featured on the Books and Writing Page. There will be several log books in the Garden Journal series, as well as a wildlife series. I am also working on a mystery series for young adults.
I’m a pastor’s wife and we have two adult daughters. Along with my husband I’m co-founder of Lifewerks, Inc., a non-profit. Our family lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA.
